Er Chen Tang
Dries dampness and transforms phlegm, rectifies the qi and harmonizes the center*
Phlegm and dampness manifesting as chronic tracheitis, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary emphysema, goiter, chronic gastritis, peptic ulcer, eclampsia, hangover, gastroptosis, Meniere's disease, neurosis, etc.*
Within this formula, Ban Xia (Rhizoma Pinelliae), is the sovereign. It is acrid and warm and its nature is drying. It is able to dry dampness and transform phlegm as well as to downbear counterflow and harmonize the stomach and thus stop vomiting. Chen Pi (Pericarpium Citri Reticulatae), is the minister. It rectifies the qi and dries dampness. It aids in normalizing the qi and dispersing phlegm. The assistants are Fu Ling (Poria), and Sheng Jiang (uncooked Rhizoma Zingiberis). Fu Ling fortifies the spleen and seeps dampness. Once dampness is removed, the spleen may become effulgent and phlegm can no longer be engendered. Sheng Jiang downbears counterflow and transforms rheum. It is also able to neutralize the toxins in Ban Xia. It also helps Ban Xia and Chen Pi move the qi and disperse phlegm. Gan Cao (Radix Glycyrrhizae), is the envoy or guide. It regulates and harmonizes all these other medicinals.*
